"No One's Gloomy or Complaining"-in DISNEY WORLD!~An 11/12 TR!-*NEW TR Link pg 56!!!*

Welcome Everyone!!

It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.
And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents - your TRIP REPORT!






This will be my 6th TR and hopefully the best one yet, considering it was one of the best trips ever!

Before we get going, I'd like to introduce to you to the cast of this TR! There is of course, me!


(Under the Sea!!)

I'm Jen, and I'm pretty much obsessed with Disney. You can probably call it a problem, because the more I go to Disney, the more I want to plan trips! Basically the whole reason I exist is to plan trips to Disney for months, and then go on these planned trips that consume my life, come home, and start the process over. Of course I have other interests, you know, work, DH, cats...but let's face it, we're all here on the DIS because we're Disney freaks, right? I love Disney at any time of the year, but Christmas is definitely my favorite time to visit, it's so beautiful and magical!

We also have my wonderful DH Brandon joining me on this trip!


(Green Army guy!)

He's not as much of a Disney obsessed freak as I am, but luckily, he does love it, or he wouldn't agree to go to so much! He does want to go other places on vacation (maybe even next year! ) but somehow, I always seem to manage to talk him into one last Disney trip! He loves the Food and Wine festival and hates crowds and long lines at Disney, yet he will wait in a 40 minute line with me to meet Minnie Mouse for 30 seconds, just to make me happy!


(Just a random picture of us, for fun!)

Our trip was from November 8-November 17, the week before Thanksgiving! This is the 3rd time we have been to Disney during this week, it's one of our favorite times to visit! You get the end of the Food and Wine festival and the beginning of the Christmas season! We also got to visit the wonderful, amazing NEW FANTASYLAND on this trip...TWICE! I cannot wait for everyone on the DIS to experience New Fantasyland, because it is going to exceed your expectations! (It's also the reason this TR is kind of Beauty and the Beast themed, with the title and the intro and everything! )

I hope all of my lovely DIS friends will join in to read along and comment, and I'd love to meet some new DIS friends along the way too, so please stop by and say hi! I'm so excited to share this trip with everyone, so let's go!!

I'm here and can't wait to hear all about it! That's great that you got to go to the new FL twice. I can't wait to see it myself (in a year...) Glad you had such a great trip!

Wow, what a morning you guys had! And the fact you just barely got there for Rope Drop essentially is just baffling. I'm not sure if I would be able to do it and I have no problems getting up super early. Whoa, but glad to hear everything wasn't a big problem even if there were setbacks in this morning. A shame in all of this you didn't have time to get some initial pictures of POR. Oh well...

Great MK pictures! I think that is probably the first time I've seen Marie meet anywhere outside of Epcot. That's a rare moment right there. And that Danish looks so good, mmmm, will definitely have to make a dash for the Main Street Bakery when I'm in the World.

Ooooo... New Fantasyland looks SO COOL! A shame you couldn't get in though that morning. Hopefully this will come later in the trip to riding BTMRR and the Haunted Mansion! The view from the front on BTMRR is so cool, I don't think I've ever been in the front OR the back. It is my goal to be one or both of those seats one day

Can't wait to hear about how you deal with the nonexistent crowds!

I hope my experience checking out of AoA is not as slow as yours. We too will have a park to get to!

Other than that, great morning. That first time getting into MK is just so perfectly magical!

YAY! Time for EPCOT! I love the picture from your door at POR. It looks like such a pretty resort. I think I would like to stay there sometime And it's totally okay to be a Disney snob, I'm sure most people are because honestly, those Deluxes are GORGEOUS! So pretty!

Great photopass picture, a shame Brandon refused to smile in that one... or wear some Mickey ears hehe And that's so funny how he noticed the Hawk on top of Spaceship Earth. I'd probably be the person to see something like that too haha So funny how he was trying so hard after to get a picture of you looking up at SE and at the fountain! That fountain is just too too photogenic!

Mmmmm... all those FWF dishes look so good! I need to seriously run down to EPCOT and snag some of them. I mean, those pot stickers look just to die for! Uggghhh, now I need some of the mediocre sustenance in my house (well mediocre in comparison to Disney... sometimes).

Can't wait to read about your ADR!

POR is lovely, you should totally stay there! I think the next time I stay in a mod, I'm going to finally give POFQ a try, but POR is amazing, I would definitely go back! Haha, yeah, I am kind of a deluxe snow, even though I've only stayed in 2 so far! I can add 2 more to the list in Feb. though!

Haha, yeah right, Brandon refuses to wear Mickey ears, it's so annoying! As long as he doesn't have a problem with my Minnie ears though, whatever! I love that fountain, I'm kind of glad the SE picture didn't work out, because I like the picture of me, looking at the fountain!

I love F&W so much, I am really hoping to do a weekend trip this year, because the thought of no Food and Wine in my life for a year is just too much for me to handle!

All caught up once more! Sorry I've been pretty much doing the lurk on this TR. It's been a struggle trying to make time for the DIS. But I just love being able to read through a day in one full swing, so it's not all that bad, but I only have so much time for commenting. Based on your instagram updates, I'm guessing you just got back from another fantastic trip! Will be excited to read that considering you stayed at my FAVORITE resort, the beautiful AKL! As well as seeing your experience with Disney in a whole new setting. And I'll be eagerly awaiting another update here!

Hi Everyone!!

I'm back from my trip! Well, I've been back since Monday, but I haven't had much time to DIS lately! I'm so exhausted from Disney, just coming home and going right to work kind of drained me this week! I want to get caught up on everyone's TR's, so I'm going to try to do that this weekend, and also do at least one update here!

About the February trip...I know I said I was going to do a TR for that trip, but now I'm not sure. I was going to do a really quick little highlights TR in THIS TR, but now I'm thinking maybe I should just start a separate thread, just so it doesn't get confusing! I just do not have time to write 2 TR's and who knows when I'll be done with this one, so it's not like I can wait until I finish this one to start the next one! And I took awful notes on this trip, so if I'm going to do anything, it has to be in the next few days while I can still remember everything! I think I will probably just do a separate thread and try to just fly though every day in one shot each night and just focus on the highlights instead of doing a full TR! Does that sound good? If I do it, I'd like to start it in a day or two, I have to get my pics uploaded first, and think of a title, of course!

I'll let you guys know when I start, but first, I'd really like to try to get caught up on all the TR's I missed while I was away! And then maybe later tonight I'll do an update here, but we'll see, I probably won't have time! Definitely tomorrow though!

Let us know when you decide what you're going to do. I'm excite to read the rest of your current TR... but I've never been in any of the winter months, so I'm anxious to see what it's like in Feb, too.
